  • The seller completes and signs the "Assignment" section on the back of the share certificate(s).
  • The seller sends the completed certificate(s) and the fully-executed Stock Transfer Agreement and Application to MnSP.
  • If the buyer is not a current member, the Stock Transfer Agreement and Application and completed certificate(s) must be accompanied by a membership application, membership fee, and uniform marketing and delivery agreement completed and signed by the buyer on all transfers of class A preferred stock (the delivery shares).
  • MnSP's board of directors approves or disapproves the transfer in accordance with and subject to MnSP Bylaws.
  • MnSP notifies the seller and buyer of the approval decision.
  • Seller and buyer close on the sale (i.e., buyer pays seller for the shares) and notify MnSP of the closing.
  • MnSP issues a new certificate (more than one, if the seller is retaining some of the preferred stock represented by the old certificate). New certificates are mailed to the appropriate parties.
